The very best use of time is to invest it. One great way to wisely invest your time is by creating lasting family traditions.
And now, with Thanksgiving approaching, all the better to maintain those long-held traditions, and even create some new ones.
Smiles and laughter balanced with reflection and celebration.
Our Nation celebrates traditions, too: Presidents, Martin Luther King, Veterans, Memorial and Independence days. On October 3, 1863, President Lincoln declared that the fourth Thursday of November would be the official federal holiday of Thanksgiving. This coming November will make 150 Thanksgivings we’ve celebrated as a nation. And we’ve never missed a single one!
